This definitely falls into the category of 'teen movie'.
However, it does have wider appeal. My family all enjoyed it, and for some of us our teen years are long gone! It's not a new scenario.
Geeky, but underneath gorgeous girl (Ashley Tisdale), has desires on the hottest boy in school. He is currently tied to hottest girl from the 'in crowd'. The bitchy 'queen' of the in-crowd is determined to have her man at all costs. Introduce an over protective single dad who isn't coping with his little girl growing up and is overly protective. The scene is set.
Give the movie it's due. Although there is an underlying element of sexual conquest, this is the most smut free 'teen movie' I have seen.
The storyline does have credibility issues, as might be expected, and there are some cringey moments. But what would you expect in a teen movie?
Charming and very watchable.

I know what your thinking ' it all seems abit like been then seen that' but you couldnt be more wrong. Yh some of it is a little bit used but over all it is great. I hadnt heard anything about it and when i saw the cover i was liek 'yh hes fit, ashley tisdale is kind of annoying but o well' so i bought it. When it arrived i watched it and with in the first 5 minutes i got really into it :). this is well worth it and its cheap, so go for it :) x

wow. This film is amazing.

i have seen it and i will not give anything away but ashley tisdale is a nerd and its her 18th birthday. the film is sort of the AMAZING video phone she gets for her birthday and trying to get to the party which is being held by her all time crush.

This film is not too cheezy but is definently aimed for people in their mid teens.
i enjoyed this film as i am 13 and it was perfect for me. i guess people from abotu 12 to 18 would enjoy this film but only girls as it is a chick flik :D

for anyone who likes comedies with romance added in, this is for you. it is really funny and ashley tisdale is a really good actress. its different from your usual chick flick (loser girl gets cool boy), because it has the added twist of the video phones. i would recommend this to every teenage girl!

I'm really surprised at the good reviews for this one. Fair enough, people have different tastes but even setting aside the rather boring, one dimensional storyline of a girl's quest to get a guy who already likes her to like her, the subtext is horrible. Despite the fact she claims to be a poor, geeky, nobody she is in fact living (as far as I can see) a rather nice life with a professional father who loves her (even if he is overprotective) and the worst thing that's going on in her life is the fact she doesn't have the latest phone.

I normally love an ugly duckling kind of story, but the problem here is that the girl is not an ugly duckling and she doesn't really have any way to grow as a character. Her "transformation" pretty much consists of her getting contact lenses and a new dress. She constantly calls on her father to trust her whilst lying her behind off the whole way through. Her antics as she tries to keep up the charade should be funny but they fall flat for me.

I found this frustrating in a lot of ways, but one of the reasons was the waste of acting talent because the leads did the best they could with a very annoying story.

I''m going to sound like a real crank now, but this film contains so many of the negative messages that mess with young girl's heads (looks and money are everything, you have to have the latest tech, lying is okay... I could go on) that I give it one star and seriously recommend you give it a miss. If you want a funny teen flick that has decent female characters almost anything is better than this.

Great movie, couldn't wait to watch it after my friends told me about this movie and when I got it, I was pleasantly surprised! Love this movie, and the fact that it got to my house within 2 days of ordering it! Even better! Definitely would recommend this!!!

I thought this film was absolutely awful. I watched a few years ago when I was 12 and I love it so maybe only 12 year olds should watch it.
